Answer

3 hours

Work Step by Step

Numbers counted per minute = 60 therefore, numbers counted per hour = 60 x 60 =3600 Total numbers to be counted = 10000 Therefore hours required to count total numbers = (10000 / 3600 ) A round off estimate gives (9000/3000 = 3) Therefore, an estimate of 3 hours is required.
